How to choose a game

Published:

Dear Sex Counselor,

I see a lot of different games to play with my partner, but I can’t seem to choose. Can you help?


If you want to start an intimate conversation with your partner, but don't exactly know how to start.  Having a game handy like the, Intimate 4Play game, might be just what you need to get you talking, sharing, laughing and hopefully touching!  This game focuses on telling and understanding your & your partners preferences when it comes to erotic touch and sexy talking, and can be played again and again without disappointment.

Or play 52 Alluring Sex Games for Lovers, a game that can be played all the way through, one card at a time, or any time!  Each of the 52 cards offers an exciting game that you can play with your lover with the help of a little ice cream, a shower, a blindfold ... you get the idea. It’s a portable way to perk up an average day or a weekend away!

For more touch and sensual intimacy, try the Lover's Massage Kit for ideas on how to give more than your usual massage. Each kit contains 90 cards illustrated with beautiful heterosexual couples and a die to roll to see who will start rubbing who.  If you want ideas and more ideas to help you create a sensual massage experience.  You might want to have some massage oil, honey dust or a feather or two for additional touch experiences.

Enchanting Evening is another excellent choice for couples that are looking to re-ignite the spark in their relationship. The players begin the game with each writing down her or his secret romantic wish, which will be granted to the player who finishes the most questions first. These questions are often open-ended, allowing the players to discuss their personal opinions about intimacy and sexuality. This game gives couples the tools to slow down, enjoy each other, and re-learn why they fell in love with each other.

To incorporate spice and spirituality into your love life, we suggest Kama Sutra. This very popular game is based on the Kama Sutra, the oldest and one of the most widely used sex manuals. Presented here as a board game, Kama Sutra draws from the ancient text to create a sensual play atmosphere where you and your lover can explore each other. This game stresses the importance of making time for consensual erotic play that uses all five senses in order to take eroticism to a higher level. The game includes cards with nicely illustrated positions from the original Kama Sutra book ranging from "easy" to "very difficult" (our non-yogic reviewers found the positions comfortable and stimulating), but the focus of the game lies more on communication with your partner about your sexual desires. This game is a good choice for couples that want to incorporate more adventure, exploration, and erotic spirituality into their relationship.

Finally, Sensations is high on our list of favorites. Not only does it encourage you to explore different physical sensations, but it also includes different toys for you to experiment with, including a small vibrator and a blindfold. The premise of the game is to complete more "challenges" than your partner, thereby earning more "favor" cards. While the challenges do include some "getting to know you" questions, they are mainly steamy sexual dares. The person with the most favor cards at the end of the game wins; the winner has 30 days to redeem all of their coupons. One of the most overtly sexual of our games, this is an excellent way to introduce the idea of using a vibrator or blindfold to your sex play to spice things up.
